The Band Perry, â€œThe Band Perryâ€ (Republic Nashville): Awkwardly-named brothers/sister country act already have two hits on their hands from their debut set, â€œHip to My Heartâ€ and â€œIf I Die Young.â€
Belle & Sebastian, â€œWrite About Loveâ€ (Matador): Scottish bandâ€™s eighth full-length set is its first in four years and reteams the Stuart Murdoch-led group with â€œThe Life Pursuitâ€™sâ€ producer Tony Hoffer. Guests include actress Carey Mulligan, as well as Norah Jones.
Far East Movement, â€œFree Wiredâ€ (Cherrytree/Interscope): Electro hop group has a smash on its hands with â€œLike a G6,â€ and thereâ€™s likely more where that came from with such guests as Keri Hilson, Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg.
The Orb feat. David Gilmour, "Metallic Spheres" (Columbia): Electronica pioneers pair with Pink Floydâ€™s Gilmour on this double set; the second disc is recorded in 3D surround sound, for what itâ€™s worth.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, â€œThe Social Networkâ€ soundtrack (Null/Alliance Entertainment): Edgy, electronic soundtrack to â€œThe Social Networkâ€ has Oscar buzz.
Darius Rucker, â€œCharleston, SC 1966â€ (Capitol Nashville): Hootie & the Blowfish leader follows up his first country album with a new self-penned set that hits all the usual country cliches.
The Secret Sisters, â€œThe Secret Sistersâ€ (Beladroit/Universal): Muscle Shoals, Ala.-based siblings, Laura and Lydia Rogers bring that old family spirit to a largely acoustic classic country set. The album was produced by T Bone Burnett, while Jack White produced first single, â€œBig River.â€
Sufjan Stevens, The Age of Adzâ€ (Asthmatic Kitty): Stevens turns in his familiar, largely acoustic soundÂ for a new groove with hip-hop beats and layered electronics.
Various Artists, â€œThe Vampire Dairiesâ€ soundtrack (Virgin/EMI): Why should â€œTwilightâ€ and â€œTrue Bloodâ€ have all the fun? Hit TV showâ€™s soundtrack features previously-unreleased tracks from Smashing Pumpkins and Gorillaz, as well as cuts from Tears for Fears, Kate Bush, Bat for Lashes and others.
